Grete removed all the dead / overgrown / weird / scary plants out of the little strip of soil in front of the window in the front garden last week. It sort of looked a lot tidier and then it suddenly looked a lot like it was empty so we popped into B&Q today and got some plants (not many). We got a few more bags of ground covering bark for the back garden borders as well to keep the weeds down. We bought short plants which will hopefully spread and cover the soil surface and flower during spring and early summer, assuming they survive long enough.
Here’s how it looked after being emptied –
And here’s how it looks now with the few plants in it –
